In just one month and ten days I’ll be jumping on a plane and flying, coat and gun in hand, to Detroit.
Saab WILL have some new product there to look at and the smart money is wagered on it being the 9-4x crossover vehicle. It’s got to be either that or the new 9-5. I can’t see them taking the trouble of offering to fly me there for anything less. As much as we’d all love it to be the 9-5, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be the 9-4x.
Saab have done a pretty good job of keeping this one secure. There’s been no spy-photos in testing, except for the Saa-vy Trail-7x mule that’s been spotted around Sweden. There’s been no preliminary images or anything. The only word I’ve had is the comments from a few people who saw it at Saab corporate engagements earlier this year in Sweden.
The question going through my mind is – who wants one?
I’ve had no-one at all from the Saab enthusiast community bombarding my email wanting details about the Saab 9-4x. Not a soul. Nobody from the US and no-one from Europe. Zip.
This could be good news or bad news, depending on how you look at it.
The dark side: maybe no-one at all is interested.
The brighter side: maybe this opens up a whole new demographic for Saab, one that doesn’t currently peruse the web looking for Saab information.
If you ARE looking for information on the Saab 9-4x, I’ll be compiling a summary entry soon, but you can also check the entire 9-4x category of this website.
